Training philosophy for learning takedowns in BJJ
While I'm sure that there are exceptions, most BJJ schools alot a pitiful amount of training time to takedowns, meaning that most BJJ:ers are unprepared in the area when they enter competitions, glass-strewn parkinglots and lava-laden alleys.
My question is, how do you make the most of the limited amount of time dedicated to takedowns? My idea right now is to completely dispense with the judo-throws I'm being taught, as they seem to risky to try without a significant amount of training time invested in them. Instead, I've decided to work on getting single legs, as I find them easier to pull off with just a little training, and considering that I spend about five minutes a month working on takedowns, I figure it would be best to concentrate all of that time on just learning one takedown properly.
Any comments on this?
